live live. live live live. live live . live. live. plus talk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want to live. as area bag is classified as one of the world's thirty most polluted sites it's tanneries or an out in out ecological disaster laying to waste everything around them every day the factories belch forth fifteen thousand cubic meters of toxic refuse leaving it to pile up amid the housing and along the river bank. the demand
soon the waste floods into to a lings penetrating the soil and filtering down to contaminate the water tables. the brewery ganger river flows through the slum is paying the highest price. the tanneries use vast amounts of water millions of liters of water required to wash treat and tender skins. this water goes into the sewers. it is no longer useful you know it is discarded. it ends up polluting the river. haven't you noticed the state of the burger rivers water this is the water that flows into it. all this water laden with chemical products is dumps directly into
the river with no purification. i this is a very it is their life they know this is the only a walk i want to get close to god. and the plan of attack i dependent on this river for a number of trees this week just some of which are bt if i defy the affair by the end there will be. if. we wash ourselves here brooke. as we have no other choice we have no running water but there are always two hundred people waiting at the public fountains so we have to wash them this filthy water. just like many others the owner of this small town or e. specialized in dying skins is unconcerned by the hazards his activity gives rise to .
the owner of this evacuation system has been in use for a long time. it was dirty water inevitably goes into the river. there's nowhere else for it to go that's the way it is. bagnall the judge it would naturally flow into the river. thief of course water containing chemicals is bad for the health probable there would have been a bubble but if we worried about toxicity it would stop working. to go by when it was ready to do that. but in this country and the polluters need the factory owners polluting they don't really want to clean up. philip again is a bangladeshi scientist in ten years he's been the only person to study the question of the pollution produced by the ten days of his area back. i think that
that situation has become worse he sees the washed polluted area that i have ever seen in bangladesh and in many other countries. maybe yes maybe he didn't get hurt yet and all the factories. releasing. three did leave we waste. seventy per cent of the total for the show and that is being caused to this rebirth is coming from the teddy. don't be grown man eater that either walked up and easy to figure out how to take chromium out of us to stop . if yourself a smoker is contaminated with chromium and if it is contaminated activity that you can't even cure it that means you're actually exposing the entire population of the city into very deadly n.s.e. the.
tellers have poisoned the city's entire canal system. was the main artery of. drinkable water and fish to the population. today it's the third most polluted river in the world no living will can survive in it and the stench it exudes makes even sailing there is a difficult. issue . to leave that alone. you don't even need to. go back but it would. cost on the end of the water is poison can't be any fish with the tanneries. tell you our forefathers were fishermen and
lived off it we haven't caught anything for seven months now the film. was to carry on even if there are no more fish we can barely survive. that should look. good joe you see our empty nets oh my. god lives should use the. yes it. was. the. run. dry. but. it's only during the rainy season with the fall of fresh water the fishermen could hope to catch a life fish. it would take many years and millions of euros to clean this water
don't let them look at them i have that is what i have been eating here for thirteen years when i want to resign clean and my husband was a fisherman and we were leaving thanks to seem that all did they have to fish for on the road again there is an edible and my husband is out of work if the riva were cleaned we could leave well from it. go to the government is responsible for the state of the battleground a good long look what happened to it this river runs right through dhaka how could they let this happen why the government does nothing. the human ecological consequences are nothing short of a catastrophe. the world trade organization has ruled that alternatives must be brought up to international regulation re standards by two thousand and fourteen but bangladesh finds itself in a catch twenty two situation now to continue developing its booming leather
industry and at the same time respond to the health and environmental concerns of its population. to deal with the situation the department of the environment has appointed mr choudary. his mission is to bring the factories up to standard and to sanction the polluting industrialists that's to say ninety nine percent of tannery . how can i say that it's easy to do much complicated to ship it to lending. him next year and also for long. and then france because. he. should there be an effect and dry after having. we raise so much pressure from the industry and owners from the high hopes. complaint about pollution is to challenge really intense scientific team have come to take some samples.
yes are you listening to me not our long defined which factories are responsible i think belongs to the group like the one to the. money. we've got to get samples. telling did what you did why did the pollution is increasing there were swimming was over here and how it becomes so that their. money is money out of how we got those samples. on the field. after discovering an exceptionally high level of water pollutants he visits the tender young. begin. coming over here and we found this. illegal trade did this releasing the dog to go out there without having to mend this leg in polluting waters going to the pound and polluting the agriculture the cows you see taking the plants having
this body did what i did and they made this big animal mandich to be ordered to let's go up this dust is very dangerous one of those factories dust emissions are poisoning us. this it also does dimension from this factory and we are not being affected. by need to proclaim i think there's a problem with your water the oxygen levels and it will be low with the smell of money to the waters but i can tell from that smell. funny going to the can we did push up but it would seem your water tree. system isn't working every day i got to put this and i know. you have invested in installing it but it doesn't work. but it d.p.p. but it's not functioning and this is this is proof of your failure the oxygen level is very low but i'm going to test it in front of you. that you can pick up it's very poor water odor and color are so strong in order to. you'll see. this
money from practical experience and this is what it is dog free from pollution samples show the level of oxygen dilution in the water to be zero point four for a fish to survive it should be at nine. but there this is a warning so that you correct your errors but i'm going to have to sanction you for your wrongdoing but you'll be closed down if you do nothing but to believe me i've had many factories shut down but you can check what i'm telling you it's in the press. the statutory fine for polluting the environment is ten thousand euros yes this appears this remains more of a threat than actually enforcement of the law. putting to transparency international bangladesh is one of the twenty most corrupt countries in the world in his area bag
nine of the largest turner is are owned by government members. after being. approved having already been. told try to take some help from the get rid of this banality. good example from our legal action. to try to get some help from the higher ups a but we didn't allow this unlawful already. every day it's the government gives and the government gives invasively because they get to be on their. money because the danity owners halloo it but and then we finish the money that can. cross to solve enforcing the law against. me because he took a. seat.
i would rather ask questions to people in positions of power instead of speaking on their behalf and that's why you can find my show larry king now right here on our t.v. question for. in two thousand and three the supremes called raised the alarm ordering the his area back turner is to be relocated and brought up to standard the designated land fifty kilometers from dhaka was intended to accommodate the tanneries as well as a water treatment plant nine years later and still nothing has happened environmental activist dr masterson is working to relaunch this project. this place was barely you know it was very clumsy place it is a law and take surely after. setting up
a new. city here nobody has filled up this land with. it so people of getting thrilled. i think has been done here but. people come here hundreds of people are coming to see the new place how do developing know it is not developing at all despite all this commitment from the government all this is from the government. down to the owners have not not this and the owner has moved from this there are has shown any need of moving from this place without the fees the reason is that if they go far. and making their. investment environment friendly they probably would have to make a major contribution with their profit and we don't understand one thing. in just a group can be much stronger than the government when the courts did it did they
get there is have to move within a certain day if they are bad i have to show dollars then it was actually the government put big on behalf of the dead lady owners in the court and the government pleaded for an extension after so you see the gallery owners and the government coming to get there in asking for more pain from the court it could have been just how do we deal with. this developing country of one hundred fifty million inhabitants ensures its economical survival thanks to the letter and textile industries which represent eighty percent of the nation's exports let the market is booming. production costs in china have doubled over the last five years and the dish has become the place to go so biased from the west in two thousand and ten alone that the production here rose by forty percent. the industry supports a multitude of smaller businesses skin drying transportation waste intimidation and
incineration. approximately one million people live for less than manufacturing and it sensitively activities nothing goes to waste in this trade. small skins will become purses and bags. even scraps of flesh fat and died less a remnant we used. can . these also cuts destined for the open air factories. that.
yes yes we pick them up with our bare hands. a little bit and what's that. it would lever shavings the machines shred them here on it is it going to. make a dent and. i think that's the bin i'm going to do anything with that over there that's the fat we used to make so. it's only one of everything is what we see here . i mean these are actually waste so only the waste from the families these are being used for different purposes i mean this is solid and liquid mix used for making salt water i know from them are you brian is that i mean these big dry crashed and she's actually raw material that you
say to turn around or manufacture on three feet much and come out laughing at that ok she sees her feet full speed and bone to pick. this bone meal is made from love the leftovers pulled with animal carcasses and beef and trends it's then used to see chickens and also prunes for the european market. jane and say i. want to see. many. chefs i don't see how they can see people eating fish and. chicken. paid to these. terrorists to get to my body. but what you see here it's unbelievable i mean i think of any. or any any
any place. eighty open air bone meal factories here built in the middle of housing and give those toxic fumes day and night which makes death the most polluted city in the world. when you see the smoke over there going to be about how long could anyone last here does that take a look at the x. rays of inhabitants lungs any of them you'll see they're black under x. ray they appear black. a candid moment by the talks of fumes here spread for miles around. me dad. you can smell it you're going to turn up or not is good north south east or west in a fifteen kilometer radius is it getting stiffer it might endorse the same job.
how much do you earn a twenty seven euro's and how long do you work for nonstop so they say they work on this bridge hours. and in half an adult salary the children of bangladesh also toil for the leather industry to contribute to the nation's economy and to not trivial. holding to the president of the franco bangladeshi chamber of commerce the country's strengths is its works all. before we take that bomb of this we continue to stay in the competitive level because we have been a large young force coming into the market embarrassed about two million work force . in the coming to market the president infrastructure industry and other
infrastructures and private media and these people are waiting for you know benefit disguised employment maybe why do you need. two workers where five workers are walking so this is an advantage obama. elicit workers poti made up with child labor those figures enable us to tell how many children a working in the leather industry that they are everywhere despite the fact that bangladesh is a signatory to the international convention on the rights of the child its child labor is not clandestine and. eighty percent of bangladeshis live on less than two euros a day the whole family has to work mothers often have no other choice than to go
the european union contributed two million euros to a number of his area back ten who is in the aim of producing a cleaner less. announce the results when significant the only means of saving the population in the environment would be to place the tanneries outside. the moves of this kind is costly and would increase production costs for european purchases prepared to accept such a deal. the saddest thing is that we in this country we need industrialisation but not such industrialization because east africa h.-h.
here is really pretty sad story. was i do have the best i have seen that in a number of cases once the european view is once the european consumers i thought about the fact to take a position and that situation to improve. so i would definitely hope that the european consumers would start asking questions so that tayseer get improved because in this particular case is if the buyer stake a position that can actually make life difficult for them. than anyone. else. try to. understand that we're just such a. lovely. kind of a player. can you do you think we're going to be poor all of our lives.
tears of joy and a great things out there that there has to be adequate bread or get a quart of water on the ground alive is a story made for that movie is playing out in real life. i know c.n.n. the m s n b c news have taken some slightly but the fact is i admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny but it's closer to the truth and might think. it's because one whole attention and the mainstream media works side by side the joke is actually on here. at our team news we have to print pretty good because the news of the world
just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not. good. at. you guys stick to the jokes will handle the stuff that i've got to. wealthy british soil. from time to time. markets. find out what's really happening to the global economy with. no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune in to conjure reports. of.
